Last year, Garrett Jones looked like the "one who got away" to Twins fans -- the second coming of David Ortiz -- as he clubbed seven home runs in his first 12 games, and finished with 21 in a half-season for the Pirates.  Well, this year, it looks like he is who we thought he was.  Maybe a bit better.  He has undeniable power, and knows his way around a hot streak, but he does appear to be more of a platoon/DH type.  It's still nice to see success coming to him.  It never really seemed like the Twins were serious about giving him a shot in the big leagues.  This card looks awesome, too!
